Yin Yoga and Anatomy COURSE DETAILS
This intensive level I 50-hour training is a certified stand-alone teacher training course and is also the foundation stone and first of four modules that make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yoga Alliance recognised Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.
Yin Yoga is “the other half” of yoga. It is the complementary practice to all yang forms of exercise e.g. yang styles of yoga, dance or sport. As our lives become increasingly more fast-paced and stressful, the popularity of Yin Yoga has increased dramatically in Europe, America and also Australasia due to the urgent need for balance on a physical, mental and emotional level.
Yin Yoga stimulates the fascia – the connective tissue, ligaments, tendons, joints resulting in a deeply relaxing practice while creating “space” in the body, de-stressing the mind and re-energising the soul.
The backbone of Yin Yoga and thus this training is yoga anatomy from a functional perspective. The mystery will be solved why you or your students may be having difficulty doing certain poses. Through a series of practical tests, you will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to confidently teach Yin Yoga with a deep understanding for anatomical variation which will benefit one’s own practice as well as the teaching of not only Yin Yoga, but all forms of yoga, dance, sport, massage and bodywork.
This intensive 50-hour Teacher Training is the foundation stone and first module of a 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.
Main Topics of Study:
Yin Yoga Asanas
This section covers the theory and practice for teaching 20 yin yoga poses, including their specific characteristics and their effects.
Anatomical understanding of not only the individual bone structure but also the muscular, connective, fascial and ligament tissues is an essential prerequisite for an effective yoga teacher.
7-Point Analysing Principle for Assists - Theory
This Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training focuses less on teaching set assists and much more on introducing a 7-point analysis principle, which you can then use for every known yoga pose and for each individual student.
7-point Analysing Principle - Practical Tests
In the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training, we’ll study and apply a series of practical tests for analysing the bone structure, compression and tension of our students. We will have the opportunity to learn – in a safe environment – to read a human being, to sense our own limitations and to test and recognise those of others. Eventually, with the benefit of myriad insights and enhanced self-awareness, we will be able to assess the needs and limitations of any individual student.
This 50-hour intensive programme was created for certified and aspiring yoga teachers as well as dedicated yoga students with a minimum of 2 years yoga experience who simply wish to delve more into the world of yin yoga for their own practice.
The cost for this 50 Hour intensive is $1200* (NZ Dollars) or Earlybird Price $1050* (NZ Dollars) if paid in full by 30th November 2017.
200 Hour Yin Therapy Programme
The cost for this full 200hr YYTT /4 modules is $4400* (NZ Dollars) or Earlybird Price $3900* (NZ Dollars) if paid in full by 31 December 2017.

Lots of love with gratitude!!” (YYTT I Melbourne 2016) - Eva Zhai, director of Flying Masters Yoga Event Organiser, Melbourne
